I don't want to get my hopes up until I actually have it in my hand and see that it's working properly, but my husband ordered a camera for me on eBay last night. It's exactly the same model that I have now and it was only $35 and shipping was free. I should have it in about a week.



  1. Do you have a blank template of these earrings that could be used to design our own patterns/colors? That would be wonderful!

    1. As a matter of fact, I do have a blank template. I will post it as soon as I have a chance. On Saturday I will blog about one of the fun designs that I came up with using my template.

  2. As always - great colors. RE-Camera. I hope it works out but if it doesn't, it occurred to me that if some of us that regularly check in with you would donate one or two dollars each - we could provide an easy fix rather than lose this rich resource! I'm behind on making a donation for the terrific freebies you offer and will take care of that by clicking on "Donate" button to the right---right now!

    1. I'm hoping that the battery latch breaking in my camera was just a fluke and not a problem with all of the Sony cameras like mine. Of course I'm taking a risk by buying a used camera but at least it was only $35 and not $200.

    2. I am right there with you Jeanne Dwyer. I love this site and all of Linda's designs and will help all I can to help keep Linda in a reliable and functioning camera so we can continue to see her work!!! It may be selfish on my part although it really is a win-win situation as Linda keeps posting her jewelry and we continue to see her work and learn from her!!
